TWebbrowser and proxy settings problem [Edit]

I use a TWebBrowser and I need to add proxy settings. To do it I use this code:

function SetProxy(UserAgent, Address: string): Boolean;
  dwBufSize: DWORD;
  hInternet: Pointer;
  Options :array[1..3] of INTERNET_PER_CONN_OPTION;
  Result := False;
  dwBufSize := sizeof(list);
  list.dwSize := sizeof(list);
  list.pszConnection := Nil;
  list.dwOptionCount:= High(Options);
  Options[1].dwOption := INTERNET_PER_CONN_FLAGS;
  Options[1].Value.dwValue := PROXY_TYPE_DIRECT or PROXY_TYPE_PROXY;
  Options[2].dwOption := INTERNET_PER_CONN_PROXY_SERVER;

    Options[2].Value.pszValue := PAnsiChar(AnsiString(Address));
    Options[2].Value.pszValue := PChar(Address);

  Options[3].dwOption := INTERNET_PER_CONN_PROXY_BYPASS;
  Options[3].Value.pszValue  := '<local>';

  list.pOptions := @Options;

  hInternet := InternetOpen(PChar(UserAgent), INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_DIRECT, nil, nil, 0);
  if hInternet <> nil then
    Result := InternetSetOption(hInternet, INTERNET_OPTION_PER_CONNECTION_OPTION, @list, dwBufSize);
    Result := InternetSetOption(hInternet, INTERNET_OPTION_REFRESH, nil, 0);

It works very well on Delphi 7 but if I try to compile my application in Delphi 2010 I have a problem, after I call SetProxy function TWebBrowser works always also with fake proxy settings (for example address=999.999.999.999:9999). In Delphi 2010 TWebBrowser don't use the proxy but a direct connection also after SetProxy function.

Can you help me to underestand why?

You should not do that.  The INTERNET_PER_CONN_OPTION is fully 
Unicode-enabled.  Remove the UNICODE check and just use the PChar() cast

Your UNICODE check is making your code assign a PAnsiChar (and an invalid 
one at that!) where a PWideChar is expected instead.

Delphi 2006 to Delphi XE Crystal BPL problem [Edit]

Problem with Proxy Setting
Last week I posted this request for help with an ill behaving proxy setting in Firefox. It was suggested that I post in this newsgroup. I hope someone can help. We have two different profiles for FF 1.5 running dial-up on an XP Pro machine with SP2 installed. Our Norton Internet Security is set to allow all connections for FF. Our problem is that only one of the profiles will set our localhost proxy properly. Both profiles should be using the same proxy setting of "localhost:8080 with and exception for". Since we don't open both profiles at the ...

[Help] Setting Proxy Problems
Firstly, I want to state that I'm really new in Linux and also I'm not really good in networking stuff. I use Wi-Fi (WPA) connection in my school. I followed the guide on how to setting the proxy for Konqueror and Firefox. They work perfectly fine. I tried to set proxy for Google Chrome, I did realize Google Chrome use the same setting as Konqueror. I thought it might be working. But, when I tried to surf using Google Chrome, it's not working. The request always times out. What should I do to fix it up? I do really need Google Chrome, because it does help me with...

Problem with konqueror proxy settings
Hello, can anybody help me to solve the following problem? I tried to configure a proxy connection with the Konqueror web browser (not with the default proxy settings) and now the browser works no more: it seams to load, but after some seconds the loading icon disappears. A Konqueror process appears in the Performance Monitor (as silent), but I have to kill it because indeed no Konqueror windows appears. I tried to reinstall Konqueror via Yast, but it still doesn't work. I precise that usually I go on the web with Firefox, but as sometimes I need to use a connection via a ...

TWebBrowser in Delphi 2009 [Edit]
I'm having a strange problem with TWebBrowser in Delphi 2009. If you take a TWebBrowser from the palette, put it on a form, then it works :) However, if you put the TWebBrowser control and put it on a form, and then open the form as a child window, it does not work. By 'child' window I don't mean anything to do with MDI; rather I mean opening one form almost as a control onto another (in order words, a Petzold 'child'). Code showing how this is done is posted below. This has not been a problem in earlier versions of Delphi. Something has changed. If someone cou...

Having problem with TWebBrowser on frame [Edit]
I set all of this up on a form and it worked beautifully. I then transferred it to a frame and now I get the error "Undeclared identifier 'WebBroswer1' at line 263. Below is the code in the unit and yes I have removed stuff that didn't apply to this issue to simplify this posting. What am I doing wrong here that Delphi XE doesn't recognize that there is indeed a TWebbrowser already declared? FYI this frame goes on a tabsheet on a pagecontrol on the main form. Thanks, TD {code} unit Picks; interface uses Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Class...

Delphi Designer Problem [Edit]
An older Delphi application consisting of many projects (a host exe and several plug in libraries) was thrown my way today and it has a problem. The problem lies in the way Delphi is choosing which designer to use when displaying a data module for one particular plug in library project. Each plug in library has one data module which inherits from a shared base data module unit. The base data module published some new properties like version (string), serial (string), and security (integer), etc. In all the plug in library projects, when you open the derived data module Delphi picks the ...
